The Southwest Mine is renown for its aesthetic and sculptural calcite/aragonite specimens. This example is a large, opaque calcite having an interesting 'screw' crystallization (not well captured in the photos), giving the appearance of a twisted rope. The smaller end is a complete termination while the broader end is incomplete where removed from matrix. Some bright green fluorescence under shortwave UV. No damage. Previous dealer label with a $400 price.
